There should be plenty more big days ahead for the speedy Sands Of Mali.

Winner of  the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes as a two-year-old, he has subsequently shown himself to be one of the fastest three-year-olds in Europe.

He won the won Prix Sigy at Chantilly in April on his return and then followed up in a hot renewal of the andy Lane Stakes at Haydock.

Sent off at 15/2, he then finished a fibe half-length second of 22 to Eqtidaar in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, when he was possibly not helped by racing in the smaller stand-side group: stays 6f: acts on any turf going: usually races close up.

Paul Hanagan, his jockey, sais his mount might have preferred a slower surface.

“The ground might just have been a shade too quick for my lad, maybe he was just feeling it and not letting himself down completely, but to finish second, beaten just half a length in a Group 1, he’s run a great race,” he said.

Perhaps the fast going was not ideal, either, when he failed to shine in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket last time.
